Breaking News :  ISRO successfully launches communication satellite GSLV-D6

ISRO successfully launches communication satellite GSLV-D6
MUMBAI:
The
Indian
Space
Research
Organisation
(ISRO)
has
successfully
launched
the
communication
satellite GSLV-
D6.
GSLV-
D6
will
launch
2117
kg
GSAT-6,
an
advanced
communication
satellite,
into
a
GTO.
GSAT-6
will
provide
S-
band
communication
services
in
the country. After reaching GTO,
GSAT-6 will use its own propulsion
system to reach its final
geostationary orbital home and will be
stationed 0 at 83 East longitude.
This is the ninth flight of India's
Geosynchronous Satellite Launch
Vehicle (GSLV). It is also the fifth
developmental flight of GSLV. This is
the third time the indigenously
developed Cryogenic Upper Stage (CUS)
is being carried on-board during a
GSLV flight.
GSLV-D6 flight is significant since it
intends to continue the testing of
CUS. GSLV is designed to inject two
ton class of communication satellites
into Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit
(GTO).
GSLV-D6 was launched from the
second launch pad at Satish Dhawan
Space Centre SHAR (SDSC SHAR),
Sriharikota.
GSLV-D6 vehicle is configured with all
its three stages including the CUS
similar to the ones successfully flown
during the previous GSLV-D5 mission
in January 2014. GSLV-D5
successfully placed GSAT-14 satellite
carried on-board in the intended GTO
very accurately.
The metallic payload fairing of GSLV-
D6 has a diameter of 3.4 m. The
overall length of GSLV-D6 is 49.1 m
with a lift-off mass of 416 t.
The CUS being flown in GSLV-D6 is
designated as CUS-06. The main
engine and two smaller steering
engines of CUS together develop a
nominal thrust of 73.55 kN in vacuum.
During the flight, CUS fires for a
nominal duration of 720 seconds.
S-band telemetry and C-band
transponders enable GSLV-D6
performance monitoring, tracking,
range safety/flight safety and
Preliminary Orbit Determination
(POD).
